This is the ultimate festive pie! Flakey grain-free crust filled with sweet and zesty Sugar-Free Cranberry Curd and topped with soft and fluffy whipped cream.

I used a simple almond flour based pie crust but if you can't eat nuts you could replace it with an equivalent amount of ground sunflower seeds.

I wanted to keep this recipe simple with less complicated topping so I only used whipped cream instead of the more common meringue topping. If you want to use a sugar-free meringue topping instead, check out my Lemon Meringue Pie for instructions. Enjoy!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi. Your instructions seem to be in the wrong order. The instructions say to bake, then after that to form the dough up the sides of the pan. Thanks, Valerie.

Thanks you Valerie, it was late last night and I swapped two steps. Fixed!
